Judge Rules Against Clarkston in Southern Baptist Group’s Lawsuit

The Atlanta Journal Constitution

Public Policy & Regulation Associate Jake Evans comments on a ruling that requires the city of Clarkston to allow an arm of the Southern Baptist Convention to demolish two homes in order to build a multimillion-dollar complex and ministry center. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) owns the old Clarkston International Bible Church and plans to build a massive new campus spread out across almost four blocks in Clarkston, complete with missionary housing, a training hub, a gym, a playground, a pavilion, parking lots and soccer fields.

“This is a big victory, both legally and practically for NAMB to continue its mission of making a positive difference in the community,” said Mr. Evans.
